Agreed. Now that Apple has introduced an "Apps Store" for the MacBook, there's even less of a reason for me to get one personally. I like the novelty/gadget factor, but would rather buy a pair of Aldens and spend the $100 or $200 I have left over on apps for my MacBook.
Again though, I am amazed at the educational apps they have for kids, really destroys the market for the LeapFrog and other handhelds, probably relegating them to the world of; you guess it, designing Apps for the iPad..
